    Skipper special!

    Skipper Assad Vala brings himself on. Gentle off spin from the PNG captain and he gets four dot balls in against the well settled King. 

    The pressure gets to King as he goes for slog sweep only to hole out in the deep. Are we in for an upset?

    Brandon King c Siaka b Vala 34 (29b 7x4 0x6)

    WI 63/3 in 10 overs

  • June 02, 2024 22:43

  • June 02, 2024 22:36
    WI 57/1 in 7 overs

    Left-arm spinner John Kariko into the attack. Nothing full from him against Pooran. Three dot balls gained by that means. A deft late cut from Pooran off the last ball. A good effort at the fence saves PNG a boundary. 

  • June 02, 2024 22:32

    First-innings batting hero Bau gets a go with the ball. Pooran finally breaks the shackles. Launches the first one over long off for a six and then smacks the next for a four straight back. Pooran goes again. Steps out and whacks it over long on. SIX!!!

  • June 02, 2024 22:23

    Nao continues to tie up Pooran with his right-arm medium pace. Pooran attempts a wild hoick to leg side, only to miss the ball completely. He gets off the strike with tap to short mid on.

  • June 02, 2024 22:16
    And we are back!

    Nao has had a dream start. Four balls, zero runs and a wicket. He gets back to it with two more dot balls against Pooran. Wicket maiden for the PNG pacer. 

    WI 8/1 in 2 overs

  • June 02, 2024 22:05
    Covers coming off!

    Good signs from the ground as the covers are being taken off. And we have a restart time - 10:15 PM

  • June 02, 2024 21:56
    Rain stops play!

    And now the skies are opening up and the covers have come on. Players make their way out of the ground. 

  • June 02, 2024 21:52
    Trapped in front!

    Alei Nao from the other end. Jags one back in just enough to beat Johnson Charles’ inside edge. Hits him on the front pad and the umpire is satisfied. Given out LBW. West Indies reviews without any success. 

    Johnson Charles lbw b Nao 0 (1b 0x4 0x6)

    Pooran is the new batter and he is watchful against the first two balls. Nao cuts one into the left-hander now. Impact on pad. Loud appeal but no response from the umpire. Pooran gets lucky as if PNG had reviewed he would have been given out. 

  • June 02, 2024 21:45
    West Indies chase begins!

    Johnson Charles and Brandon King are the openers for the West Indies. Kabua Morea is the new ball bowler for PNG. 

    Watchful from Brandon King to begin with. Four dot balls to start with before he decides to step it up. Jumps out of the crease and powers it over the umpire for a four. Too short from Morea and pulled away by King with a disdain. 

    WI 8/0 in 1 over

  • June 02, 2024 21:23
    PNG 136/8 in 20 overs

    Alei Nao is the new batter. Joseph to bowl the final over. FOUR! Doriga slaps the first delivery through covers. FOUR again! Doriga cuts this back-of-a-length delivery over point. Run out! Doriga digs out a yorker and the batter try to steal a single. Shepherd is quick to the ball and strikes the stumps at the batting end and Nao is well short.

    Alei Nao run out (Joseph) 0 (0)

    Kabua Morea is able to get a single off his first delivery. Only a single to covers for Doriya on the penultimate ball. A single to end the innings. Hang on, Joseph has over-stepped. A free hit for Doriya. Cannot middle a full toss, still runs two.

  • June 02, 2024 21:20
    PNG 122/7 in 19 overs

    Russell to Soper, FOUR! A streaky boundary but welcome runs. A thick inside edge takes the ball wide of short fine leg and all the way to the fence. Good running by this pair, they pick two runs off consecutive deliveries. BOWLED HIM! Chad Soper has to walk back. Russell gets it right in the block hole.

    Chad Soper b Russell 10 (9)

  • June 02, 2024 21:16
    Sese Bau makes an impact!

  • June 02, 2024 21:10
    PNG 99/6 in 17 overs

    Joseph for his third over. LUCKY! The second delivery brushes off against the off stump but the bail does not fall off. A repreive for Doriga. GONE! Cleans him up. Bau tries to make room and place the delivery through the off side. The slower delivery deceives the batter and Bau’s nifty innings comes to end.

    Chad Soper in at No. 8. Just three runs from the over.

  • June 02, 2024 21:07

  • June 02, 2024 21:03
    PNG 94/5 in 15 overs

    Russell back into the attack. WICKET! Russell breaks the partnership, gets Amini. Russell bangs this into the surface, Amini wants to cut but is cramped for room. A faint edge to the keeper. Four runs and a wicket from this over.

    Motie to continue. FOUR! Bau steps down the track and lofts this over pitched delivery down the ground. SIX now! Bau steps down once again and pulls it over mid wicket. FOUR again!

    Romario Shepherd to bowl the next. Just four singles and a leg bye.

    First over of the day for Gudakesh Motie. Couple of singles from the first three balls. Bau looks to take on the spinner by stepping down the track. Only a single there.
